4:02 am
officials did not find any reason to suspect him. he died in a shoot-out with police. his brother dzhokhar is in custody. senator claire mccaskill says there's no evidence that tamerlan and his brother were part of a larger organization. >> it appears at this point based on the evidence that it's just the two of them. >> reporter: some on capitol hill believe their mother played a role in turning them against america. >> i believe she is a person of interest if not a suspect. believe if she comes into the united states, she'll be detained for questioning, so i think there is a connection there. >> reporter: the father of the suspects was planning a trip to the u.s. but now says it is postponed because of poor health. ines ferre for cbs news, new york. now to the flooding in the upper midwest. it's nothing new along the red river in fargo, north dakota, and this year is no different. more rain is expected and the river is still raising. the national weather service says it's expected to crest in fargo at about 19 feet above flood stage early wednesday.
4:03 am

4:05 am
it looks like heavy rain or at least moderate rainfall is possible and nodl, maybe 1 to 2 inches of rain monday into tuesday. significant flooding has been a problem mostly because of snow melt, and now we're going to add a couple of inches of rain early in the week. later in the week it looks like the bull's eye of the heavier rain will be in the lower parts of missouri, iowa, minnesota, and also parts of wisconsin. notice that parts of the ohio valley and mississippi river will get the coming rain. there is a potential for more flooding. for cbs news, i'm meteorologist jeff berardelli. some good news if you are flying today. the air traffic control system should be back to normal following a week of delays. the furloughs of air traffic controllers is over. congress passed legislation allowing the faa to transfer funds, returning the number of controllers to full strength. today president obama is expected to nominate the mayor of charlotte, north carolina.
